I’m an experienced Software Engineer that has worked on projects for tiny 2-person startups and multi-million pound projects alike.
I have a strong interest in back-end development as well as cloud infrastructure and DevOps transformation and I am also AWS DevOps Associate Certified.
Mentoring junior developers is a passion of mine. I love to teach and support others in their careers.
I have strong experience working on a remote team.
Substrakt Health, Senior software engineer

Substrakt Health is the company where I’ve made the biggest contribution so far. As part of the original development team, we built and scaled web and mobile applications aimed at patients in the National Health Service. We quickly scaled the application to over 20,000 patients covering a population of nearly 2 million with almost no downtime over the life of the product.
